Here's to hoping Draco's/Andrei's sister wasn't blessed with his temperament.
And you named her Lucilla. That makes me smile.
Author's Response: I will make no assurances. *grins* Thank you again, Melissa! And well, it was just too tempting to name her after moi. But it has an explanation, don't leave my egotistical self!
Oh dear--somewhere in that rambling paragraph down there I'd planned on asking if the similarity between your line and the other was intentional...somehow I forgot to sleep that in amongst the babble. :D
Author's Response: No, it wasn't intentional. I just remembered now that you recounted it. ^_^ What I intended to show here was the new Draco, who didn't retaliate in the least when someone strangled him.
You made a sequel...I think you might be my new favorite person.
I have one question though.
This line: "....and righted himself while Draco gasped and rubbed his neck" sounds a bit like the part in, oh, I forget which book it is now that I'm trying to think of it, where McGonagall slips and ends up half-choking Hermione? If so, brilliant! And if not, I love the mental image it gives me! (and I'll feel very stupid if you've already answered this question in another review--i never read them until I've read the chapter they pertain to...don't need people unknowingly giving things away...:) )
Author's Response: I never read reviews either! At least, those that aren't mine! *giggles* Thanks, Melissa! And oh, I didn't think about that particular scene when I wrote this, but now you mention it, it's uncanny! That was Professor McGonagall in GOF, sliding from the water from Peeves's water balloons. She grabbed Hermione. :) Fancy making that happen to Draco too!
Hurry and post again! I love this story just like I loved its predesessor. Keep writing!
Author's Response: I will. Thanks, Jen!
Hah. Reviewing. No thanks to your poking, mark you. And, yes, all of my reviews for you will be like this, with me complaining about all the traumatic ABUSE I suffer at your hands *sobs* Thou art EEEEEEEEEEVIL, madam.
Ohhh, I'm so glad you're writing a sequel! Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks, Laura! i'm ablout to post the second chapter. ^_^
I love this story when my E-mail told me you had writen the sequel I squealed! No, really, I squealed! Anyway keep up the good work!
Author's Response: That's so nice, kelsey! I squealed too when I saw this review from an old-timer. Thanks for coming back! And I'm glad you loved TLLA to wait for this one. *hugs*
I could almost hear in my head all that accent haha Great Job
Author's Response: Well, I know I'm deficient in making the dialogue of the Irish very real, but I'm glad you could imagine them instead. Thanks, dear.
yaay a sequel...loved TLLA....hope u update soon....cheers!
Author's Response: thanks, ann! cheers, indeed! I will just wait for some more thrill from reviews and then I'll post the 2nd chapter.
Yay! A sequel! I totally LOVED TLLA, it was so sweet and amazingly written. I think I reviewed it before. I'm not sure. Anyways, I'm so glad that you've posted a sequel! Your writting is beautiful, as always, and I love your characterizations of Draco and Hermione. Nice cliffe, I'm dying to know what happened that is going to tie them back to England. Update ASAP, please! /begging
Great story! I'm rooting along with the rest of the town for some Andrei/Hermione. =]
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Sarakime! I hope I keep up with your compliments! The second chapter is already done and redy, so hang in there! ^_^

Author's Response: Thanks, sam. Me, too, longing for Ireland!
